July 1, 2014 Get introduced to sombré, the subtler side of ombré. Sombré, like its name suggests, is just a toned-down version of ombré. It’s so coy, in fact, that blondes can even take on the look. “Unlike the ombré that worked best for brunettes in the past, sombré actually works for everyone,” Joico celebrity colorist Denis de Souza says. Blondes who want to go lighter should opt for this dye job — you can test-drive the brighter shade without changing up your color too drastically.
